Development[edit | edit source]
The Quest released in 1995 was a special edition CD "companion" that AOL gave out produced by Kidsoft who is known for their mid-1990s "Club Kidsoft" releases that were point and clicks in a virtual club room featuring demos to educational games and acted as a portal to Kidsoft's AOL channel with fanart and contests.
The Quest is unique from the standard "Club Kidsoft" productions in that it features a story and main objective along with the "Club Kidsoft" room. Three cartoon characters find themselves on a "quest" to solve 20 riddles featured though out the content of the game as ordered by the giant shrunken heads and are teleported to a point and click environment. Various other companies including Cartoon Network are featured in this game with a Space Ghost game where users can ask him questions and hear Borak's music, along with a TV room with a Space Ghost movie clip and WB Animaniacs clip.
